A CELEBRATE 250! SPONSORED EVENT
2008 St. Andrew Lecture
Friday, October 17, 8 p.m.
In a season of uneasiness in the wider Anglican world, and as that uneasiness is felt with special emphasis here in Pittsburgh, the Adult Programs Committee of St. Andrew’s Church has invited historian Jeremy Bonner to join us as our Featured Speaker for the 2008 St. Andrew Lecture.
Dr. Bonner is the commissioned author of the soon-to-be-published, “Called Out of Darkness Into Marvelous Light: A History of the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh, 1750-2000.”
The title of Dr. Bonner’s presentation at St. Andrew’s, "Episcopal Dawn, Anglican Sunset: A Scholar’s Reflections on Pittsburgh’s Episcopal Experience," is intended to draw upon his work as author of the recently-completed history of the 250 years of Anglican and Episcopal Church presence and ministry in Southwestern Pennsylvania as a framework for reflections on the present crisis and as a context for thoughts about what the future may hold.
Jeremy Bonner received his PhD in history from the Catholic University of America in 2001 and was subsequently the J. Franklin Jameson Fellow in American History at the Library of Congress from 2001 to 2002 He is the author of _The Road to Renewal: Victor Joseph Reed and Oklahoma Catholicism, 1905-1971_ (Washington DC: Catholic University of America Press, 2008) and over the past three years has completed a manuscript history of the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh. His published work has appeared in the Journal of Morman History and Anglican and Episcopal History, in which his most recent scholarship features as "The Pittsburgh Paradigm: The Rise of Confessional Anglicanism in Southwestern Pennsylvania, 1950-2000."
For over a decade the St. Andrew’s Lecture has featured speakers addressing topics of significant concern in our community. Please invite your friends, and join us on October 17.
